  19. But for 24-D that made me wonder as to what it could be since I managed to solve all the rest while reckoning the solution to be ISLE although the letters I (in 23-A) & L (in 27-A) happened to be misfit in the ultimate.

  20. Isle is not right. It has to be the name of an island and firmament gives you the clue required.

  21. I &L are not the correct crossings.
